The 2.8-liter diesel engine used in the Toyota Hilux and Fortuner is the same. This engine is paired with an automatic or manual gearbox and generates 201 horsepower and 500 Nm of peak torque.

For 2024, Toyota has added 48V mild hybrid technology to the 2.8-liter Hilux engine. The hybrid technology will be in charge of enhancing performance, off-road capability, and fuel efficiency. It is claimed that the hybrid technology will result in a 10% increase in mileage. With the aid of hybrid technology, the start/stop mechanism has been modified, improving fuel efficiency. Additionally, the battery will assist in lowering the engine’s idling speed from 700 rpm to 600 rpm, which will enhance fuel efficiency and quiet the cabin.

Performance-wise, the battery can provide the 2.8-liter engine with 16 horsepower and 65 Nm of torque. This ought to facilitate quicker acceleration and better throttle response. But don’t anticipate a big change in real-world situations. Toyota also thinks that while the regen braking will aid in controlled downsloping, the waterproofed battery will improve the vehicle’s ability to wade through water. Overall, we think Toyota will launch the Fortuner with the new 48V mild hybrid technology because the Hilux and Fortuner share the same base and engine.
